An .htaccess file is a text file that includes directives that tell a web server how to act in certain occasions. It needs to be placed into the folder in which these directives should be executed. A lot of script-driven apps use this sort of a file to work correctly - WordPress and Joomla, for example. You can use this sort of a file with personalized content as well and do lots of things - block an IP address, a whole network or specific Internet sites from accessing your site, set tailor-made error pages that will be displayed rather than server-generated ones if a visitor encounters some error on the site, direct a domain or a subdomain to another web address, create a password-protected area and more. With an .htaccess file, you shall have significantly better control over your online presence.
